Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Emiliano

Av. Atlântica 3804, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 22070-001, Brazil Fodor's Choice

When this strikingly chic beachfront hotel opened in 2016, it quietly raised the bar in Rio’s hospitality scene with a level of attentiveness unmatched across the city. While it’s location at Posto 5 makes it ideal for exploring both Copacabana and Ipanema, you’d be forgiven from straying no further than the idyllic rooftop infinity pool, first-rate spa, trendy walled-garden restaurant, and light-filled spacious suites where private butlers care for every comfort.

PROS

  • impeccable design
  • personalized service includes room butlers
  • wonderful spa and great gym

CONS

  • Copacabana location is less sophisticated than Ipanema
  • striking exterior can be misleading to the level of luxury inside
  • bathrooms sacrifice some functionality in the name of design
